01/05/2013 Extended range of subrack front panel sizes and types

 The KM6 subrack family from Verotec is the most versatile system available on the market, with four different systems: KM6-II, KM6-RF, KM6-EC and KM6-HD, each optimised to suit a range of applications and uses. Front panels are a critical building block of all the systems, and three types are available: unshielded to IEC 60297, shielded to IEEE 1101.10 and a fur- ther design dedicated to the VXI architecture.

Shielded panels feature a new extrusion
design that accepts a slide
-on double swipe
stainless steel EMC gasket and they have an
environmentally safe, chrome
-free conductive
finish, iridite NCP. They are available as blank
filler panels, with a fixed pull handle and with
an improved design of injector/ejector latching
handle that generates greater insertion and extraction force for use with high pin count connectors. The injector/ ejector handles include as standard a pre
-location pin and an ESD protection pin; a live extraction micro switch and additional screw fixings are optional extras. Shielded panels are available in 3U, 6U and 9U heights and 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12HP widths as standard, with other widths to order.

Unshielded versions are available as blank panels or with pull handles. Both types are available either with both faces anodised and plastic screw mounting bushes or, where electrical conductivity with the frame is required, with an anodised front face, an iridite NCP rear face and metal fixing bushes. 3U and 6U heights are standard and widths vary from 2HP to full width 84HP, with hinged versions in popular widths as standard items.

For VXI systems, shielded panels in a heavy duty extrusion that accepts beryllium copper shielding fingers are available in 6U and 9U heights and 6HP widths are available as standard.

In-house customisation capability for all types includes drilling and milling holes, cut-outs, slots and recesses to accept switches, connectors, displays and indicators. Silk screen legend printing in house colours is also available through the TecServ+ value added service.
